HOW TO AVOID SWINDLERS

WHO SOMETIMES INFEST THE CARS AND DEPOTS IN AND NEAR THIS CITY.

* * * * *

WE WARN ALL THOSE WHO CONTEMPLATE VISITING US, that we have the most positive proofs that a gang of confidence men have at different times made it their business to watch for sick and infirm people on the way to our institutions, and divert them into the hands of "sharpers," confidence men and swindlers. These men have watched for the coming of invalids on the cars, in and around the depots, in the offices of the hotels located near the depots, and if inquiry was made for our institutions, or if the object of the visit to the city was made known or suspected from the invalid appearance of the traveler, they at once commenced weaving their skillfully-wrought web to catch a victim.

WE, THEREFORE,

ADVISE ALL THOSE DESIRING TO VISIT US,

FIRST.—TO ASK FOR NO INFORMATION FROM POLICEMEN, OR THOSE APPEARING TO BE POLICEMEN, IN OR ABOUT OUR DEPOTS. CONFIDENCE MEN OFTEN ASSUME A STYLE OF DRESS SIMILAR TO THAT WORN BY POLICEMEN.

SECOND.—LET THE OBJECT OF YOUR VISIT TO THE CITY BE KNOWN TO NO ONE WHOM YOU MEET ON THE CARS, OR IN THE DEPOTS OR NEAR THEM.

THIRD.—IF YOU HAVE A CHECK FOR BAGGAGE, WHEN THE BAGGAGE-MAN COMES THROUGH THE CARS, AS ONE DOES ON EVERY TRAIN BEFORE IT REACHES THE CITY, ASKING IF YOU WILL HAVE YOUR BAGGAGE DELIVERED ANYWHERE IN THE CITY, OR, IF YOU WILL HAVE A CARRIAGE; IF YOU HAVE A TRUNK, GIVE HIM THE CHECK FOR IT, PAY HIM 25 CENTS ONLY AND HE WILL HAVE IT DELIVERED AT THE INVALIDS' HOTEL AND SURGICAL INSTITUTE. 663 MAIN STREET. (Do not forget the number). You had better, also, procure a ticket from this baggage-man, or agent, for a coupe or carriage to our place, for which you will have to pay only fifty cents. (Outside prices are higher.) This saves all trouble and anxiety, as the agent will look carefully after both yourself and baggage, and you are sure of reaching our place promptly and safely. If you have only hand-baggage, such as bundles, traveling-bags, or similar luggage, you can take it with you in the carriage without extra cost.

Mr. C.W. Miller, whose agents solicit on all the in-coming trains for the delivery of passengers and baggage, has an office in every passenger depot in this city, to which you can apply if, by any chance, you miss his agent on the train.

THE INVALIDS' HOTEL AND SURGICAL INSTITUTE IS OPEN DAY AND NIGHT, AND YOU WILL BE CORDIALLY RECEIVED AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF.

THE TABLE IS PROVIDED WITH THE BEST OF FOOD.

NO HOTEL IN THE CITY HAS BETTER ROOMS OR BEDS THAN THE INVALIDS' HOTEL.

THIS INSTITUTION IS NOT A HOSPITAL, BUT A COMMODIOUS AND COMFORTABLE INVALIDS' HOME.

If all we say of our institutions, and our advantages and facilities for the successful treatment of disease is not found, on your arrival and investigation, to be just as we have represented them, WE WILL PAY ALL THE EXPENSES OF YOUR TRIP AND YOU CAN RETURN HOME AT ONCE.

"A WORD TO THE WISE,"

in the nature of advice, to those about to visit us, in conclusion, may not be out of place.

KEEP YOUR BUSINESS TO YOURSELF WHILE ON THE ROAD HERE, ALSO WHEN ABOUT THE DEPOTS, AND ASK NO QUESTIONS OF ANYBODY.

MAKE NO TRAVELING ACQUAINTANCES. THEY ARE DANGEROUS.

Observe the foregoing directions, and any child of twelve years, possessed of ordinary intelligence, can reach our conspicuous place, 663 MAIN STREET, Buffalo, N.Y., without fail.

FOOTNOTES

Footnote 1: Darwin.

Footnote 2: The males of Cryptophialus and Alcippe, species of marine animals, are apparent exceptions to this rule. They are parasitic, possess neither mouth, stomach, thorax, nor abdomen, and are, necessarily, short-lived.

Footnote 3: Dalton—Human Physiology.

Footnote 4: In the use of the terms psychical and psychological, we have observed the distinction which metaphysicians have recently made. They employ the term psychical to indicate the relation of the human soul to sense, appetite, propensity, etc., and psychological, as indicating the ultimates of spiritual being. In this manner we use the word psychical as describing the relationship of the soul to animal experiences and being, and psychological as referring to the spiritual potencies of the soul. The distinction being introduced, we continue its use rather then coin new words.

Footnote 5: Certain disturbances of the bodily organs excite fear. The apprehension of danger, or simply mental excitement, does not explain what is called "water fright," "stage fright," terror excited by the raging of a storm, or the rocking of a boat. In such instances the heart may beat heavily, the respiration be irregular and attended by precordial oppression, giddiness, weakness, and physical inability to articulate a word or recall a thought. These bodily conditions are not subject to the control of the will, but arise when individuals are perfectly assured that no danger threatens. At other times, as in a fearful tempest upon the sea, although the danger be imminent, if the bodily functions are not disturbed, there is not the least manifestation of fear.

Footnote 6: A placebo is a harmless and valueless prescription, which physicians sometimes make merely to gratify the patient, as a dose of "bread pills," etc.
